The British brand is preparing a limited-run car to celebrate 100 years. Although it's only been teased with one very limited image, logic would suggest inspiration will come from the Blower Bentley.

Bentley has announced a new special edition, set to debut at the 2019 Geneva motor show, as a celebration of its centenary.

Inspired by one of its racing models, the limited-run car was this morning teased with a picture of a car's badge, sitting above what appears to be a retro-painted grille.

We'd suggest the grille is a nod to the legendary Blower Bentleys of the 1920s, although the treatment has also been applied to concepts since then.

That's about all we have to work with at the moment. Bentley used its press materials to remind the world about Walter Owen Bentley's original objective: built "a fast car, a good car, the best in its class."

"This guiding principle has driven Bentley ever since, pushing the brand forward and making it the leader in automotive luxury around the world today," the press release proclaims.
